Professionals who have earned their SWANA Landfill Certification have demonstrated superior knowledge and understanding in their field. In fact, SWANA's MOLO Certification Program is so highly regarded that numerous states, throughout North America, now accept successful completion of this program in lieu of their own certification requirements.

The new course provides a comprehensive look at the field of landfill operations management-everything from the basics, to site and environmental management and monitoring, to landfill closure. Coupled with other educational resources, on-the-job training, and real-world experiences, SWANA's new MOLO program will help individuals prepare for SWANA certification in landfill operations.
